Our Lisbon Travel Guide covers what we consider to be the best attractions, food experiences and top things to do in the city. Lisbon is one of our favorite cities in the world and to have an opportunity to revisit again with my parents was an opportunity we jumped at. With only three days to visit Lisbon and show them all of our favorite museums, landmarks, eateries and places to shop we had our work cut out for us. However, we feel our Lisbon City Guide covers the essentials and allows you to feel as though you’re moving around more like a local as opposed to a tourist. Now let’s explore things to do in Lisbon, Portugal!

20 Things to do in Lisbon, Portugal Travel Video Transcript:
We feel like we know this city well, so in this Lisbon travel guide we’re going to show you around what we think are some of the best attractions. We only had 3 days in the city this time around, so this Lisbon itinerary will be perfect for any of you visiting on a long weekend escape.
We kicked off our first morning with a ride on Lisbon’s most iconic tram line:#28 bound for panoramic vistas and a hilltop castle. After postcard perfect views looking down over Alfama we went towards the castle, with a little detour offering a bit of street art.
St George Castle is a Moorish castle that looks down over the historic centre and the Tagus River. It’s one of the main tourist landmarks in the city and you get great views of Lisbon.
We circled back to visit the Jeronimos Monastery. Construction of this monastery was ordered by King Manuel, who selected the religious order of Hieronymite monks to occupy the monastery.
Pastéis de nata were created by the monks at the Jerónimos Monastery, and seeing as we were right next door, this was a very logical stop. After browsing at the Sunday Market we walked over to the Santa Justa Elevator, which is the only street lift in Lisbon for public service.
We hope you enjoyed our Lisbon travel guide and found it useful for planning your own trip. If you have any other suggestions of things to do in Lisbon please share those in the comments below.
